‘Aches and Pains of Aging’ conference held in Laredo
"We invited the entire community, from doctors and nurses who wanted to learn about the latest in aging research, to caregivers who work with the elderly, to people from the community who care for older family members or anyone interested in staying healthier for longer," said Gladys Keene, M.D., M.P.H., regional dean of the Regional Campus. The keynote speaker, Steven N. Austad, Ph.D., professor of cellular and structural biology and interim director of the UT Health Science Center’s internationally known Sam and Ann Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies, researches longevity in a variety of animal models. At the event, he presented "Lessons About Healthy Aging from Nature." Demonstrations on healthy cooking, fun ways to stay active and how to begin a home garden were also held. Information was presented on how to keep teeth healthier longer in order to maintain natural teeth, and on preventing or minimizing common breathing ailments such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
